In this way, the two belong to the broad contemporary movement of analytical skepticism. Newton Garver and Seung-Chong Lee discuss this commonality, Derrida and Wittgensteins similar view that language is the key to understanding philosophy, as well as distinguishing the differences between Derridas style of obscure terminology, long, involved sentences, and multiple meanings, and Wittgensteins approach to writing, which makes use of simple, familiar analogies and similes.

Looking at Derrida and Wittgensteins place in the history of philosophy, Garver and Lee assert that while Derrida is playful and witty, this method often obscures his ideas- conversely, Wittgenstein is considered the better philosopher because of his use of naturalism to resolve the problems of Kants version of critical philosophy.

The authors explore structuralism and metaphors as linguistic devices central to the theories and criticism of both Derrida and Wittgenstein.Working to eschew the often uncritical interpretations given to Derridas and Wittgensteins works, the authors seek to further a fundamental understanding of what philosophy is and of how it operates. Toward this end, they explore the role of language, grammar, and logic in relation to metaphysics within the context of Derrida and Wittgensteins incompatible, but oddly complementary, linguistic theories.
